Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology eBook
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an �abnormal� ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
The Athlete's Clock
In athletes, stride rhythm is often coupled with breathing while running, walking, cycling, or rowing. This is called entrainment of ventilation and locomotion.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
We take a closer look at studies into the effects daily activity and caloric restriction have on animals, and what the results might mean for humans.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise Presentation Package plus Image Bank-5th Edition
Inactivity is a major cause of obesity in the United States. In fact, a sedentary lifestyle may be just as important in the development of obesity as overeating!
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
Despite the widespread integration of hydrotherapy into an athlete�s postexercise recovery regime, information regarding these interventions is largely anecdotal. Although a number of physiological responses to water immersion are well researched, the underlying mechanisms related to postexercise recovery are poorly understood.
Recovery for Performance in Sport
The water-immersion recovery technique consists of covering part of the body, or the whole body, in water.
History of Exercise Physiology eBook
In 1719, Friedrich Hoffmann (1660-1742), a physician from Halle, obtained his doctoral degree with experimental investigations about the effects of physical exercise on the human cardiovascular system and on digestion.
